​Getting Students to School

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your MyCBE/PowerSchool or completing a transportation registration form.

Please visit the CBE website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2020-21 school year.​​

To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must register by the June 14 deadline. Any registrations received after that date will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September.

Yellow school bus registrations can be cancelled by Sept. 30 with no financial penalty. Cancellation forms must be completed before a pro-rated refund can be considered. No refunds will be processed for service cancelled after Apr. 30 or for individual trip delays.

Parents/guardians whose children access yellow bus service can view the status of their bus using the MyBusStop App or on My School Bus Monitor.

Visit CBE Transportation​ for forms and more information.

Conditional Riders

Students who are not attending the designated school for their program, or who are not within the transportation service area, may be able to access existing service if there is a suitable stop on the existing bus route. Fees will not be waived for conditional riders.

Criteria for conditional riders:

  • Must access an existing stop

  • Must be room on the bus

  • Must pay the transportation fee

  • No additional bus routes will be implemented to accommodate conditional riders

  • Must wait for written approval from Transportation Services before starting to ride the bus

Conditional riders are not permitted to ride the bus until it is determined there is space on the bus and riders have been approved by Transportation Services.

School Bus Safety

If your child takes the bus, it is advisable that you stick to that routine. Our experience is that children who know routines demonstrate increased confidence because they know what to do. If your child is not going to take the bus, please advise the classroom teacher of the pick up plan. In order to keep with routines, it is requested that you pick up your child directly from his/her bus. Sometimes, children come to school saying that they are being ‘picked up’, yet the school has no information. To avoid end of day confusion and to ensure child safety, we will put any child without information directing otherwise, on the bus. Thank you for adhering to this communication protocol.

Non-Regular Pickup

If you do plan to pick up your normally bussed child, please be at the school by 3:45 pm and wait for him/her at their bus. If a child does not have a note that they are being picked up, and you are not at the bus at dismissal time, we will put the child on the bus. Buses pull out at 4:00 pm sharp.

Kindergarten Bus Riders

Just a reminder, parents are responsible for ensuring their child’s safety to and from their bus stop. Parents/Guardians are required to be at the stop to meet kindergarten children; our drivers will not let an unmet kindergarten student off the bus. Please keep emergency contact information (e.g., cell phone numbers) where it is easily accessible by your kindergarten student. If you have missed the bus, drivers will often offer the courtesy of driving by the stop again at the end of the route and/or trying to contact the parent(s). If this is unsuccessful, they will return to the school with your child. Please note that substitute drivers normally follow the same processes.
